Cooperative Purchasing

GPCOG’s Cooperative Purchasing program saves our municipalities thousands of dollars every year. We coordinate a competitive bidding process for the purchase of a wide variety of vendor products and services to obtain the best possible pricing for our municipalities.

In FY18, we saved our member municipalities more than $350,000 in road salt purchases alone.

GPCOG’s cooperative purchasing program offers ten products:

  • Road striping
  • Paving
  • Crack sealing
  • Road salt
  • Culvert pipes
  • Heating fuels
  • Bulk copy paper and office supplies
  • Signs
  • Snow plow cutting edges
  • Transportation fuels

If your community is interested in purchasing through our cooperative purchasing program, please contact Tony Plante, Director of Municipal Collaboration, at 207-774-9891 ext. 216 or tplante@gpcog.org.
